Live in a new Larkfleet home… before you buy it!

Print Friendly

Undecided about which home to buy? Wouldn’t it be great if you could spend a few days in the property of your choice before making a final decision?

Well now you can, thanks to an innovative ‘try before you buy’ scheme introduced by developer and housebuilder Larkfleet Homes. The offer is available to anyone aged 55 or more who is interested in properties in Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire.

The ‘test-run’ opportunity is available on selected properties in Oakham, Bourne and Eye, near Peterborough. It gives potential buyers a chance to experience the quality of a Larkfleet home and to sample life in the local community.

Here are some details about the places and properties available:

Leighfield Park – Oakham

Oakham is surrounded by beautiful Rutland countryside which residents delight in exploring. One of Europe’s largest man-made lakes, Rutland Water, is only seven miles away and is popular with walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts.

An historic open-air market held in the town’s market square every Wednesday and Saturday, near the ancient octagonal Buttercross, is a major attraction.

Oakham has excellent road and rail links with Birmingham, Leicester, Cambridge and Peterborough, offering the potential for quick and easy commuting.

The ‘try before you buy’ property in Oakham is a three-bedroom terraced home on Saddlers Row. It offers a spacious kitchen diner with separate living room and a downstairs WC. A large master bedroom with en-suite and a second large bedroom are on the first floor. A home office over the garage has a separate entrance so homeowners can enjoy the independence of working from home without it encroaching on their family life.

Abbeyfields – Bourne

Bourne is a bustling market town in south Lincolnshire with many local amenities including a leisure centre, restaurants, four high quality schools, a theatre and range of shops.

Peterborough is just 16 miles away, making Bourne an attractive option for commuters, and there are excellent road and rail links with nearby towns and cities.

Tallington Lakes, popular with water-skiers, windsurfers, canoeists and other water sport enthusiasts, are minutes away.

The popular two-bedroom Ayr property is spread over two floors, featuring a spacious lounge with adjoining kitchen, family bathroom and single bedroom on the first floor; the second floor includes a master bedroom with en-suite and two double walk-in wardrobes.

Parson’s Prospect – Eye

Local amenities in the village of Eye include a selection of independent shops, a beauty salon, pubs, restaurants, a library, a children’s park and a primary school.

Nearby Peterborough has much to offer including the Queensgate shopping centre, The Key Theatre, Showcase Cinemas, Ferry Meadows and a 500-acre country park which is popular with cyclists, joggers, anglers, walkers and families.

The property available to test-run is a spacious five-bedroom home with a generously-sized entrance hall, an office room, a utility room, a large kitchen diner and separate family living room on the ground floor.On the first floor, there are three large double bedrooms (two with en-suites), two single bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
